hello everybody

Good to see, some cool people have joined this new forum!

My Introduction:

I - somehow - was able to read even before school, at the age of five.
And "learning" to read, in school, was drag for me, boring to the max.
So, I started reading stories and books at a rather early age.
When I was 12, after several books, I just couldn't help but thinking that the Bible is just another "story-book", tales of ancient times.
I soon could not "believe" in these stories anymore, abadoned the whole as being an invented thing...
And I found out even back then, that its all for controlling people, making them toe some imaginary line, keep the flock in a herd !
While on the other side, the clerics of this church committed the most heinous crimes !
Which is where my opposition to the church came alive.
And later on made me an Agnostic.

Reading about Islam, as well as first hand experiences, travelling muslim countries, doing my job, and reading news and other reports, makes Islam appear as the ultimate hoax, even worse than anything else, a highly dangerous ideology, able to bring out the worst of beasts in mankind!
Proof - read the news!

Follow-up...
I deeply despise any Religion !

Normally, meaning the years before 9/11, I didn't even bother to really discuss any Religion.
Sometimes I wished we could turn back the hands of time towards those flower-pottie 70'ies, where everything seemed so peaceful [it wasn't, I know!]

Now - my beard is whitened, and we are "at war" with a "religion" !
What a "brave new world"!

Looking forward to some interesting discussions!
